Behind the Scenes of Camp Little Cloud

A lot is happening at Camp Little Cloud this week. Magic, Ty, Apache, Sugar, Cowboy, and 13 of their horse friends arrived at camp on Monday afternoon.

It didn’t take long for all 18 horses to explore their area and to have a taste from each pile of hay- to find out which is the freshest!


The horses are still getting rid of their winter coats, and the rain we had on Monday didn’t help their appearance. We think Tank, the newest edition to our horse group, will look pretty dapper after we get all the hay off of his face! What do you think?

Check out Magic, who walked off the trailer and immediately started rolling around! He was so excited to head to camp!


In between the horse deliveries, we worked to move brand new teepee poles to their spot at our Whippoorwill unit, which will be home to 6 new teepees this summer.

    I was on staff at Little Cloud in the late 1960s and 1970s. I enjoyed this peek at the camp, but was hoping to see more pictures of what the place looks like today!
